Braces (or fixed appliances) are the gold standard in comprehensive orthodontic treatment. They provide high precision and require no compliance in wearing or removing since they are bonded to the teeth. Metal braces are the most common, and you can choose ceramic (clear) braces at no additional cost.
Clear aligner therapy allows easier brushing and flossing and may be a better option for certain types of cases. Let us know if you're interested in clear aligners so we can discuss them at your exam appointment!
